UA prof’s Indian Health Service nomination passes Senate committee

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The U.S. Senate Indian Affairs Committee has endorsed the nomination of Yvette Roubideaux to lead the Indian Health Service.

Roubideaux, a member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, is an assistant professor in the University of Arizona’s College of Medicine.

Word of the Senate panel’s confirmation of the nomination on Thursday came from South Dakota Sen. Tim Johnson.

The nomination now goes to the full Senate.

The IHS provides health care to American Indians. Johnson’s office says an estimated 1.9 million Indians receive health care services through IHS or tribally operated health programs.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
